We'll be playing for a second consecutive Friday coming up on February 20th. The change should allow us to avoid several future scheduling conflicts coming up in the next few months. Really what it means to the players is that we get an extra night of card flipping!
The format is something new. Build your deck as usual, but characters in all zones (hand, deck, KO pile, resource row, removed from game zone etc) lose and can not gain team affiliations. The important thing to note here is that they are NOT considered to be unaffiliated either. Any reference to a team affiliation on any card will be considered blank text.
